By Judith Tankel, 2014 TY Rosh Machane
This past weekend, some U.S.-based members of the Leadership Team (Merakzim, Roshim, Tochnit Tsevet and Hanhala) for Summer 2014 gathered at Tel Yehudah and started getting ready for the summer! While it was quite a shock (for me at least) to see our camp covered in snow, it was beautiful and great to be back home!
Over the course of the weekend we had a chance to celebrate Shabbat together, but also to discuss a lot of exciting ideas for the rapidly approaching summer. Together, we explored upgrades to specialty area programming and opportunities, discussed ways to improve our daily schedule to fit the needs of our program, got a jump start on staff pre-summer preparations, and just generally discussed how we can make camp better than ever.
It was wonderful to be back at camp and I think I can safely speak for the group that we can't wait for Summer 2014 to start!
Judith Tankel went to Camp Judaea, Tel Yehudah, Machon in Israel, Year Course, worked at CJ, and has been a TY tsevet member since 2007 as a National Mazkirut member, madricha, kitchen tsevet and Merakezet before joining us in 2014 as our Rosh Machane. We could not be more excited to welcome Judith to TY's senior staff and cannot wait for another summer of amazing Onegs:)
